Dark Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie

Dark Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie

We are in February proper now and it’s “Love Yourself” month here at Sparkle. Treat yourself to a good dose of health and well-being, by respecting your mind and body, and filling them with only great things!

Our breakfast smoothie recipe today is inspired by chocolate-covered strawberries on Valentine’s Day.

The small chunks of dark chocolate are an absolute treat and you can relish in the fact that they contain lots of skin-loving antioxidants.

A scoop of orange-flavored Sparkle collagen peptides will lend a lovely citrus taste and help your skin stay plump and radiant.

Recipe:

  • I cup frozen strawberries
  • 1½ almond milk
  • 2-3 squares of dark chocolate
  • 1 scoop Sparkle Skin Boost
  • 1 teaspoon brown rice syrup or choice of sweetener (optional)

The result is a slightly tart and chocolately beverage so if you prefer your smoothie sweeter, you could add some brown rice syrup. And the girly dark pink color would put you in a great mood even before you sip on it.
